House Sparrow reloaded














I already posted several pictures with house sparrows, however those pictures were taken mostly on my balcony. I'm working and living now in Cluj Napoca. a large romanian city, but on weekends I'm going home in Jibou, a small city on countryside. We have there a house and a relative large garden. One of our neighbours had til last year some cats and those cats were probably responsable for the disappearing of several birds ... also for the disappearing of robins. Since she doesn't has the cats, is the number of birds in our garden countiously growing ... we have a lot of sparrows, thrushes, chaffinches and for te first time a nesting blue tit family.
I will post now some shots with the sparrows resting, sleeping, feeding or just making some gymnastics.

  1. Imadni valok ezek a kis smacizo verebek. Vagy egyaltalan verebeke, mert nagyon arra hasonlitanak, de mindegy na az a lenyeg, hogy nagyon elvezetes kis sorozat. Sanson nekem nincsen profi telem, es igy egyelore madarakat nem igazan tudok fotozgatni, de azerty neha meg meg probalkozok.

  2. Good to hear the birds are making a comeback Andor. Good range of shots of the House Sparrow, especially the adult male feeding the youngster.

    @holdingmoments - I'm very glad for the comeback of the birds. It's a good reason te spend more time in the garden.

    @naturestop - thank you! I'm using a Canon 1D MkII N camera (sometimes I make also sport photography and for that is very important the speed and the focusing system.

    @chris - that's hope it too. This weekend I will try to photograph the blue tits.

  6. I like the way you have observed and photograph the entire sequence of the sparrow's behavior. The image of the parent feeding the juvenile are my favorite...Thomas

  7. Oh yes. When I had a cat, he loved to catch birds. Luckily, for the birds, I'm allergic to cats now. :) I love the shots of the male feeding the other sparrow.
